    Knowledge of carbon exchange between the atmosphere, land and the oceans is important, given that the terrestrial and marine environments are currently absorbing about half of the carbon dioxide that is emitted by fossil-fuel ...
  • Wessels, Konrad J; Steenkamp, K; Von Maltitz, Graham P; Archibald, S; Scholes, RJ; Miteff, S; Bachoo, A (IEEE, 2009-07)
    This study used remotely-sensed phenology data derived from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), in a fully supervised decision-tree classification based on the new biome map of South Africa. The objectives ...
  • Scholes, RJ; Anderson, F; Kenyon, C; Napier, J; Ngoepe, P; Van Wilgen, BW; Weaver, A (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2008-11)
    The CSIR celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2006 by taking a long, hard look at its continuing role in South Africa. This paper was written by the CSIR Fellows, at the invitation of the Department of Science and Technology, ...

    The Southern African Regional Science Initiative (SAFARI 2000) involved two wet season and one dry season field campaigns. This paper reports on the wet season campaigns. The first was conducted at five sites along the ...
  • Scholes, RJ; Savage, MJ (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1989)
    The parameters used to describe the flow of water, and energy to a lesser extent, through the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum are reviewed and the techniques used for estimating their values contrasted. The measurements ...
  • Scholes, RJ; Archer, SR (Annual Reviews Inc, 1997)
    Savannas occur where trees and grasses interact to create a biome that is neither grassland nor forest. Woody and gramineous plants interact by many mechanisms, some negative (competition) and some positive (facilitation). ...
  • Scholes, RJ; Dowty, PR; Caylor, K; Parsons, DAB; Frost, PGH; Shugart, HH (Opulus Press Uppsala, 2002-06)
    The Kalahari sand sheet occupies 2.5 million ha in southern Africa. It is an area with relatively similar deep Aeolian soils, and a strong south to north gradient in rainfall, from 200 to 1000 mm mean annual precipitation ...
  • Scholes, RJ (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2002-09)
    This paper describes a simple, quick, non data-intensive quantitative approach for sorting certain types of environmental issues into those that are unlikely to be problems; those likely to be problems; and those requiring ...
